PlaceCyprusConceptThe concept of my proposition for an anti-war monument has its origin on the child’s view on the war and its consequences. The image of a child which tries to meet the void that his missing father has created by his absence, is a strong icon that becomes the symbolical image for the Child s unredeemed soul. The image of a missing man is cut out of a metal panel as an abstract outline and the sensitive child’s figure with his hand extended is like trying to meet the “the absence”, or entering through the void in a different world where he can find answers to his existential embarrassment.
